. the only thing i read that kind of means something, if this had been closer to election day, al gore supposedly would have won florida if the weather was better. that is democrats seem to not turn out in as great numbers as republicans on election day. that is why they want to put out as many people as they can during early voting. >> but we know with this early voting and some early voting stations being closed down, maryland already shut down on monday, you know, can this have a can i goant impact or is it just too early to tell right now? >> i think it is too early. i could be brilliant, maureen, and say i know what is going to be the result. maryland, only four states did better for obama than maryland. it's lock. virginia might be pivotal and maybe with the benefit of hindsight, we could have said, if romney had spent more time in virginia, although they've both spent so much time here, by canceling one event in virginia beach, i don't think it is going to make a difference. >> all right. fox 5 political analyst mark plotkin, thank you and stay safe. >> thank you. >> all right.
